The Latest East & Midwest Grain & Hay Prices

Added October 7, 2008

Upper Midwest (Des Moines, IA)
9/24/08
Compared to two weeks ago, organic grain and feedstuff prices were mostly steady on moderate demand and offerings.  Still much talking and inquiring going on but no one really wanting to sell much yet.  Soybean harvest has gotten off to a slow start.  No yield reports as of yet.  New crop feed corn sales from $10.25 to $11.00 per bushel.  New crop feed soybean sales reported from $24.00 to $25.00 per bushel.  New crop food grade soybean sales from $26.00 to $27.50 per bushel.

All prices FOB price per bushel except where stated (trucking cost needs to be added)

Eastern Cornbelt (Springfield, IL)
9/24/08
Compared to two weeks ago, organic grain and feedstuff prices were steady to weak.  Trading activity was slow for moderate offerings. Feed grade corn and soybeans were steady to weak.  Small grains were lower on heavy supplies.  Feed corn and soybeans prices were pressured by lack of producer selling.  With corn and soybean harvests approaching many producers are waiting to see which direction the organic market will settle.

All prices FOB price per bushel except where stated (trucking cost needs to be added)
